More About This Book

Overview

The unexpected beneficiary to a trust fund created to honor a Vietnam war hero, Becca McGee struggles with the changes sudden wealth will bring to her ordinary life and its influence on her twelve-year-old daughter. Facing a challenge to her faith, she's bombarded by questions she can't answer. And, her common sense seems to have vanished. The lawyer retained to settle the trust proves himself a jerk, acts like a stalker, and appears to be an impostor. When someone prematurely leaks the details of the trust to the press, steals her cat, and threatens her daughter... he's her prime suspect. Still, she finds him incredibly attractive.

J.T. Harrison's plans to practice family law are derailed when a large firm offers him a position in its probate department. Fresh out of law school and studying for the bar, he can't refuse the income. Now he's a political hire moonlighting for his rich uncle, well paid for doing menial tasks-delivering manila envelopes and overseeing floral deliveries. But why is his elderly uncle secretly sending yellow roses to a woman half his age who could easily steal J.T.'s heart?

As the story unfolds, an old man's obsession mixes romance with a touch of suspense and mystery as it threatens every aspect of Becca McGee's life. J.T. must settle the Rogue Trust while his ailing uncle still lives. Becca has stolen J.T.'s heart, but she's quick to condemn. And, with his knack for falling victim to circumstantial evidence, it seems unlikely that J.T. can settle the trust or win Becca's hand.

    Loved This Book!  Mystery, Suspense, Original.Plot Wrapped in Br

    Loved This Book!  Mystery, Suspense, Original.Plot Wrapped in Bravery, Love and Community

    The Rouge Trust
    By Deanne Durrett

    The Rouge Trust is a story of hope, courage, love and community. We begin with mystery delivery of 14 roses to Becca, a widow with a teenage daughter. The roses have a note attached that triggers a memory from Becca's childhhod. Unraveling the story behind the card and roses Becca face an opportunity to be wealthy immediately. We see her struggle with a decision on taking the money knowing her life and her daughter's will forever changed.
    Durrett weaves mystery, suspense, and intrigue throughout telling us this story. And she does is such a way you are never bored with the story, never feel everything is rote, and you certainly do not want to grab a book mark and wait until later to finish. She has a beautiful, unique and inspiring story intwined with all this of a war hero and those who served under his command. 
    Durrett has an easy going writing style and the pace is much like a lazy afternoon. She develops her characters well making you want to get to know. While this is Christian fiction it certainly is not the sterotypical Christian fiction. We are not surrounded by angelic characters spouting off Bible verses all the time. We see characters who are realistic with a faith that is part of who they are and influences their life choices and relationships.
    Excellent book. My first to read of Durrett. Hopefully it will not be my last.

    What a wonderful book! Enough mystery to wonder what is going to

    What a wonderful book! Enough mystery to wonder what is going to happen next, enough romance to keep things interesting, a mom who truly cares about her unique daughter, her family and her friends. Many people wonder what it would be like to be suddenly rich. This book asks the question and gives many possible answers. The relationships between the characters are a wonderful dynamic in the book. The story of the 14 roses is sweet. This book kept me up late so I could keep reading! I was given a copy of this book for my honest review,

    The Rogue Trust by Deanne Durrett is a great story of a young wo

    The Rogue Trust by Deanne Durrett is a great story of a young woman who is the heir to a huge fortune that was created to honor a Vietnam war hero. The story begins with Becca receiving a bouquet of fourteen yellow roses and just gets better and better from that point on. Becca McGee is working hard to provide a good life for her twelve-year-old daughter, Amy K. Becca has been widowed for three years but still wears her wedding ring and really has no desire to date. J.T. Harrison is the young, good looking lawyer that is handling the inheritance and Becca seems to think that he is a jerk, a stalker, and an imposter. Neither want to admit there is an attraction and J.T. has his work cut out for him in convincing Becca to accept the inheritance and to give him a chance to get to know her better. The stealing of Miss Honey, Amy K’s cat, is just one of the many events that put a good deal of suspense into the story. One thing that was not in the story that I kept expecting to read was the amount of the inheritance. The reader is only told that it was a huge inheritance and that Becca would be able to do anything that she had ever wanted to do.




    The author did an excellent job in the development of all the elements that make up this story. The characters were very believable and nearly all were very likeable. I was living Becca’s life right along with her for I have sometimes day dreamed about what I would do should I be fortunate enough to inherit a large sum of money. Becca’s struggles are real and the author did a great job in the way she portrayed Becca working through each problem. All the scenes were so well scripted that I felt myself taking part in everything that was going on. There were several twists and turns to the plot but each twist just added more to the story. I simply adored Becca’s daughter, Amy K, for it was so good to read a novel with a sweet and obedient preteen. I very much enjoyed the friendships and family interactions that were woven throughout the story along with the characters dependence on God for direction.




    I highly recommend this book to anyone that loves a good romance spiced up with a little suspense and that has love and friendship all through the story.




    Thanks to the author, Deanne Durrett, for providing me with a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
